Sundragon Pottery is a “not for profit” Community Association, run as a members club. It began life in late 2013, when Becky Belcher, Fiona Scanlan, and other refugees from the seven potteries that closed down in Birmingham (due to funding cuts), set up the studio to have somewhere to “play with clay”. It has flourished because of the hard work, determination, and benevolence of our members.
We offer a variety of membership options and courses for experienced and aspiring potters of all ages and abilities, as well as one-on-one tutoring and pottery parties.
Our team of friendly and knowledgeable tutors (including Fiona Scanlan, Ian Gwynne, and John Chamberlain) run courses throughout the year covering all aspects of pottery. Whether you’re interested in wheelwork, you’d like to get into hand building, or you want to find out more about techniques like raku and glazing, we’re sure to have a course for you! We welcome all ages and experience levels, and also offer sessions for children and families.
Sundragon Community Pottery also offers studio membership for anyone who wants to come and go as they please. This gives you access to the pottery, clay, tools, glazes, and equipment, and everyone is welcome. We often have some of our resident potters on hand to provide assistance and offer guidance to those who need it.
